Myself, if I were the leader of
A Social Transcendental Centre,
And free-electron ideological entity,
I would prefer to travel about by 'chopper'
Or motorbike than by car.
Imagine a convoy of black limousines
Heading from the leader's headquarters
To wherever he wants/has to go.
Isn't there something bourgeois
And starkly middle-of-the-road about
Such a mode of transportation, better suited
To democratic prime ministers and presidents
Than to theocratic leaders?
Why should he be driven about like a bourgeois,
As though partial to expensive cars,
When he would be more in his ideological element
With a motorbike, even if in a sidecar?
Wouldn't he be partial to zipper jackets,
Since beyond the use of button-up coats,
And wouldn't they prove more relevant
To motorbikes than to cars?
Yes, I dare say they would, since connoting,
Like bikes, with a transcendental bias,
Symptomatic of a theocratic extremism.
So for short trips from, say,
One part of town to another,
A convoy of motorbikes,
Their riders clad in black,
A kind of elite bodyguard - booted, helmeted, armed,
The leader somewhere in the middle of the convoy,
Well-protected at all times.
And for long trips, a 'chopper',
Well-protected in the air and monitored
From the ground - fast and transcendental.
